Our last production was Wife After Death by Eric Chappell, which took place at Merstham Village Hall 21 - 23 October.
This wickedly funny play saw the action taking place following the passing of a ‘national treasure’…Dave Thursby’s friends are gathered at his funeral. Their memories are very different and when the mysterious Kay arrives to drop a bombshell, everyone tries to keep up appearances for the sake of the widow…later, when the time comes to dispose of the ashes, Dave’s secret life is exposed and tempers and ashes, fly!
Our audiences loved the comedy as the story developed and we played to mostly full audiences for all three nights.
Teamwork was what it was all about and Toby Jones, in his directorial debut, molded his cast into a great team, with good performances and impressive ensemble work
Merstham should have had no doubt that MADS were in the Village Hall that week! (although we didn’t hang balloons outside – an ‘in’ joke!) So, MADS members who didn’t come (you know who you are!!) – you missed a damn good show!
